    1. Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot enough to sizzle 1 tablespoon Hy-Vee butter on contact. Whisk together 2 Hy-Vee large eggs and 2 tablespoons water or Hy-Vee milk, then pour mixture into the skillet. Reduce heat to medium.

    2. After the eggs set slightly, push eggs from the skillet edge toward the center using a flexible spatula. Tilt the pan, letting any raw egg flow across cooked egg. Continue cooking until the eggs are no longer runny but still moist on top, about 1 to 2 minutes.

    3. Place veggies, cooked meat, and/or cheese over half of the omelet. To speed the process, use precooked meats such as diced ham or bits of pre-cooked bacon.

    4. Using the same spatula, gently fold the omelet over the filling. Tilt the skillet and slide the filled omelet onto a dinner plate.
